Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt


The Best Easter Ever Is Today

Maureen Pratt Author PicOh, no, you might be thinking. Isn’t she a week or so off? Didn’t Easter already happen? Is she calendar-challenged?

Not at all! I know that April 20 was Easter Sunday. But the best Easter is today. And tomorrow. And the next day.

The best Easter happens everyday when we remember that Jesus, God’s only Son, lived on earth, died, and rose again. Easter happens when we recall God’s amazing love for us, His forgiveness, His Salvation, and His promise of Life Eternal. Yes, that’s when Easter happens – in our hearts – and it’s the best!

We might run out of chocolate bunnies (oh, no!), and we might have to wait until next Easter Sunday to belt out, “Hallelujah!”, but we don’t have to leave the essence of Easter behind.

We’ll never run out of God’s love. We’ll always have something to sing about.

And we’ll have the Best Easter Ever every single day we look to our Savior and let Him lead us on.

Blessings, all!

Maureen
